The Los Angeles Ducks of Anaheim stole game 1 of the Stanley Cup playoffs with a thrilling 3-2 come-from-behind victory over the Ottawa Senators last night.  At least, I'm guessing it was thrilling.  I didn't happen to watch it myself, but I looked at some pictures and people seemed pretty stoked about it.  So, hooray!

Unfortunately, the game was overshadowed by the third-period tragedy that killed dozens of fans who were trapped in a large glass box without air.  Anaheim center Ryan Getzlaf (pictured) tried to break the fans out of their airless grave before it was too late, but failed.  So sad.
